9AM – Missed the bus!!!
Aerobic Endurance: Cycling
Distance: 11miles (+1 Mile uphill to Cycle home)
Notes: Had a hard time dragging myself up this morning because I was sore and exhausted hence I decided to skip this morning’s training. However, I got too engrossed in trying to book the cheapest flight to Vermont that I lost track of time and eventually missed the last bus that would’ve taken me to school on time for my 10am class! In desperation I tried cycling after the bus somewhere in the distance that I couldn’t see, thinking I’d be able to catch up to it. After 15 mins I realized it was futile and checked google maps for the next bus. If I had waited for that, I would reach school at 1030 and be late. The only other option was to cycle to school which would take 55mins. By cycling, I would only be 10 mins late. So I choose the lesser of the two evils 😉
After what felt like the longest cycle in my life, I reached school at 1010am despite cycling to the wrong building initially haha. The funniest part? I found out later that the lesson starts at 10:30!
Inadvertently, I guess God did not want me to slack off this morning’s training. 🙂 Today’s cardio: checked!
